Who is Van Jones?
Van Jones grew-up in Tennessee as a young kid. Jones has said that before going to college, he wanted to be a journalist, but quickly realized that American society needed a wake-up call on race and abandoned his dreams of being a journalist. He would rather make the news than report it. Jones goes on to say that if he would have been in another country, he would have joined an underground guerrilla sect. He arrived at Yale dressed in fatigues, combat boots, and a Black Panther bookbag. He graduated from Yale law. He is a self-described “rowdy black nationalist”. He is better known for founding the Ella Baker Center. It is an Oakland-based nonprofit group that helps out with criminal-justice issues that affect low-income people of color.
Jones got arrested in a sweep during the a Rodney King protest while observing. While in jail he met, in his words, “I met all these young radical people of color – I mean really radical, communists, and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of.'” He spent the next 10 years of his life working with a lot of the people he met with while in jail “trying to be a revolutionary.” By April 28, 1992, “I was a rowdy black nationalist” and on April 29, 1992 (day of the verdict of the police officers involved in the Rodney King verdicts). By August, “I was a communist.”
By 1994, the young activists formed a socialist group called Stand Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM). They held study groups on the teachings of Marx and Lenin. In 1996, Jones decided to launch Ella Baker Center named after a civil rights hero, Ella Baker.
For those who may not know who was Ella Baker, let me let you know. She was a big time player in the civil rights movement and in her later years was active in the socialist groups. Baker collaborated with Arthur Kinoy, another socialist wacko, to form the Mass Party Organizing Committee, a socialist organization. In 1972, she travelled the country promoting the release of Angela Davis. Davis was implicated in a homicide when a shotgun registered to her name was used in a murder involving a judge. She fled and became the 3rd women to appear on the FBI’s Most Wanted List. Eventually, Davis was caught in New York and acquitted of all charges. She was a member of the Communist Party of the USA. She left the group to form her own socialist group.
Basically, the center was named after a person who was a socialist and went around the U.S. asking for the release of a communist who was on the run from the police for “possibly” being involved in the murder of a judge. Van Jones went on to make a name for himself in the “green” world as an environmentalist. He was named in Time Magazine as on of the 100 Most Influential People in 2008 for his work. In conclusion, Van Jones is a rowdy black nationalist, a self-described communist, formed a socialist group (STORM), and named his center after a socialist.
Who is Van Jones? Van Jones was named by President Barrack Hussein Obama as his Green Jobs Czar. Due to the extreme pressure Jones’s resume has caused to the administration, he resigned early yesterday morning. There is no way possible that the president had no idea about the background of this individual. No way possible !! Our president knew ALL of this and had no problem with it, why, because his ideology is the SAME !! Don’t be fooled and think that this was a simple mistake. Obama knew all of this. If those conservatives in the media and callers to radio shows had not made a “big stink” about this guy, he would have still be employed by Obama’s administration AND would be receiving our money as his salary. I have a few video’s I will post for your viewing to illustrate the mentality of this individual.
